Rutgers is entering its third game of the season and wide receiver Leonte Carroo is already serving his second suspension of the year. Rutgers head coach Kyle Flood announced Sunday Carroo has been suspended from the program as a result of an incident that occurred outside the stadium Saturday night following a home loss to Washington State.
Flood refused to comment about further details of this situation, but said the suspension is indefinite while an investigation is ongoing. Carroo was suspended for the first half of the season opener for Rutgers as well. Carroo has seven catches for 181 yards and three touchdowns this season. Last season Carroo was second in the Big Ten with 1,086 receiving yards and third with 10 touchdowns.
Carroo is the best offensive player Rutgers had on the roster, and his loss could not have come at a worst time. Rutgers opens Big Ten play on the road this weekend at Penn State. This has been a rough start to the season for Rutgers. The program has already given the boot to six players while Flood continues to be investigated for his interaction with a player’s professor.
